The season of rains
El Salvador is nervously greeting the regular storms of the rainy season. The country is currently under a "green alert", for caution, because the soils are already saturated from previous rains and storms are predicted on Thursday. This year La Prensa Grafica has inaugurated a special section devoted to the rainy season with weather forecasts, news stories, and information on shelters and any damage which might occur. Flooding and mudslides from rains produced by Hurricane Stan in fall 2005 left thousands homeless and killed more than 70.
